It's a quick "tour." We were there in lily and daisy season. Lovely sprays of color in an intimate enclosed green space. Well groomed with a few places to sit and be harmonious with the spirit of Eudora.

Lovely little garden walk you can attend anytime without cost (I think). Viewed the house, too, which was lovely. The gardens are peaceful and enjoyed imagining Eudora with her friends enjoying the gardens and "little house".

Normally this is closed on Sunday, but I arrived when there were having an event so it was opened. The garden has been maintained as Eudora had it in her time. It isn't that large, but pretty.

I got to experience the beauty and aroma that the author experienced...Magnolias, rose, and herbs were growing. Also inspected the playhouse her brothers used to use as a club..Should be made part of the tour

It is a beautifully designed and crafted garden, marvelously restored to 1940s period when the writer's mother "had things pretty much the way she wanted them." I have visited many more impressive home gardens, but the Welty readers will all attest to the impact of...More

This is one of my favorite places to go, particularly on a spring day when the spring flowers are in bloom. It is in our neighborhood and is really special.
